HELP My basement is flooded.

Flooded Basement

What are some of the things that SERVPRO can do when I have a flood in my basement?

  • Flooded Basement dry Out
  • Pump Deep Water
  • Carpet Water removal
  • Moisture Test walls
  • Set up Drying Equipment
  • Apply Antimicrobials
  • Test Drying Complete

Even if you have an unfinished basement, leaving water or moisture can cause damage to the rest of the structure.

Imagine the condensation that could happen when it's 90* outside. The concrete or cement blocks used to construct basements are susceptible to mold growth as well as odor.

Imagine all of the exposed framing.

Framing lumber does and will absorb moisture and thus, grow mold. The metal framing ties may not be porous enough for mold growth; but they will corrode.

How about the plumbing and wiring?

Again, any metal parts can and most likely will corrode with excess moisture in the air.

The insulation! Perfect for mold growth!

So the takeaway here is,Always remove excess water,dry quickly and apply appropriate antimicrobials.

If you have a flooding situation, SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton are prepared and ready! Call 603-298-6942 24hours a day, 365 days a year!
